Lovely place to visit with very hospitable staff. The parking area is quite unique with lively green plants. Try it out and don't forget to taste their assortments of Zen Wines!

Zen Garden Restaurant is a place to go on a sunday and enjoy garden sun and different options of food; continental and oriental are the main option. It is nice to go there with children as they have a place to play while parents eating.
